    I worked at US Foods full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great People, lots of drawings and contests to win prizes and they provided a very thorough training program on everything Culinary, equipment, stoves walk-in freezers down to a hotdog stand broiler at the local baseball game. Manufacturer Product Managers gave a 15-30 presentation on the product and how to use it while the employees drank coffee and ate delicious pastries. They may have started out slightly lower on the pay scale but in 6 mos. there was another .70 cent raise available. It was also very possible to climb the company ladder. These were opportunities that made the company enjoyable to go to each day. I would recommend finding employment here to anyone.

    Cons

    They kept an old model "point" time-keeping system alive that monitors you down to the minute on arrival, breaks & departure time then attaches "points" that count against you up to Five full points and you can be terminated at that time at the will of management. For Example...if you arrive back from break, punch in at the time clock 1 minute to 10 minutes late, that is 1/4 points. Call in with an unplanned absence, this would be "One" full point. It seemed stressful and a bit outdated for my taste. They were not very lenient on the "Plan" or Projected time to successfully "pass " the skill Training set put forth for your 90 day training period,. If you fell behind they seriously looked for you to NOT be working there in that time period. It felt like I was a "dime a dozen".

    Advice to Management

    Try not to micro manage and loosen the reins on the "point" system".

    Pros

    Great opportunity for advancement. Treat the employees like family. overall a good place to work and the weather in AZ cant be beat. thanks

    Cons

    So many changes over the past few years. Also the flip flopping of Centralized to decentralized and then back to centralized again is annoying and hurts alot of the employees who cannot relocate. thanks

    Advice to Management

    i do not have any advice for management. They do a great job on their own and dont need my two cents :) thanks
